Clarence Kerr Chatterton
American, 1880–1973
Newburgh at Noon, 1913

Along with fellow students George Bellows and Edward Hopper, Clarence Chatterton was taught by Robert Henri and William Merritt Chase at the New York School of Art. He lived in and painted in the Hudson River town of Newburgh, New York, taking the 6:30 a.m. train to school in New York City. Newburgh became an ideal subject for Chatterton, who was interested in small-town American life. Newburgh at Noon depicts an aerial view of a busy street scene. The artist shows an iron horse rolling through town, the streets below filled with carriages and people.
